The University of Maine at Augusta offers both an Associate’s degree and a Bachelor’s degree in Library and Information Science.  Most classes are available online.

  • Maine is a part of Webjunction which offers many library learning opportunities online.
  • Take a look at the statewide library calendar of events (such as the annual Reading Round-Up conference in April) which provides excellent opportunities as well.

  • The Maine State Library also offers a Voluntary Public Library certification program with online webinar courses that can be used by Ed Techs for re-authorization.
  • Consider joining the Executive Board of a professional library association such as MASL.  You'll have insight into library concerns and most will provide contact hours for attending meetings -- Contact the association you are interested in for more details.
